Simmons Supports Mattern For Mayor

I support Rich Mattern for re-election as Mayor of West Fargo. If this were a job that someone was being hired for, youd look at the resume. Rich clearly has a superior resume. He has relevant experience and a record of success. Whats not to like about that?

He has been at the helm helping to guide the city as it has been the "city on the grow" for many years and the envy of many cities in the region. When hes come up with an idea and I or another commented on it, hes said our ideas were an improvement. Hes always open to ideas that will improve West Fargo.

Mattern has always said that it is the staff, fellow commissioners and listening to the public that have helped West Fargo improve and grow to new heights. Its true, but Rich has provided the leadership to guide the city forward.

Yes, theres always an attraction to something "new." But we have to be careful not to automatically assume new is the same as better. Ive seen Rich in the trenches, fighting hard for West Fargo and Im convinced he is the best man for the job.

As a city commissioner who has worked by his side for several years, I support his re-election. On June 12, please vote to re-elect Mayor Rich Mattern.
